Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to God.
A normal Christian life should be one that is filled with the word, that the Spirit may bubble over with praise and lauding melodies from within the believers. The word of the Lord must have adequate room within us that it may operate and minister the riches of Christ into our inner being. The riches of Christ (Eph. 3:8) are in His word. Such a rich word must inhabit us richly.
